If they put the libs directly in /usr/local/lib instead of
/usr/local/lib/<linux_port_specific_directory>, then it is a big
error. But if it is in a subdirectory where no FreeBSD lib resides, it
is ok (the linux browser sets LD_LIBRARY_PATH in the start script to
the right path).
Have a look how the native browser works, the private libs are not in
ldconfig either and the browser start script sets the library path for
the browser binary. At least it did this the last time I checked...
Make three correct guesses consecutively
and you will establish yourself as an expert.
